Meet Our Leadership
Our Executive Leadership Team
Upon returning to the U.S., Bob served as Executive Director of the Charlottesville, Va., affiliate of Love INC and then as Director of Missions and Ministries at Trinity Presbyterian Church. Bringing together many aspects of his background, Bob joined Serge in 2002 as U.S. Director and was appointed Executive Director in 2005.
Bob and his wife Nancy have two grown children and in his spare time, he loves to garden and play bocce ball.
Josiah enjoys reading theology, poetry and novels, dabbling in tech, and Barbara’s marvelous cooking.
In Uganda Matt sought to share the love of the Father with the marginalized and poor, as a member of a larger Serge team focused on healthcare, education, evangelism, church strengthening, and other community development projects. Upon completing his term in Uganda, Matt returned to the U.S. and eventually pursued graduate studies at the University of Notre Dame and the University of Rochester.
In 2012 Matt returned to Serge to lead the mission’s mobilization effort. Matt and his wife Rachel live in West Philadelphia. He is a dedicated cyclist, including a regular 15-mile ride to work. His days are filled with travel, reading, hospitality, and membership at City Church, Philadelphia.

Jennifer finds joy in her four children, writing novels, spending time in the wilderness, and sharing her home and meals with others.
The father of four, when he’s not working, Scott stays active by running, cycling, and playing soccer and tennis. He also enjoys making brick oven pizza and perfecting the art of making cappuccino.
Before joining Serge in 2020, Michelle spent 17 years in the MBA career management space working with employers, alumni, and students at both The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and The Johnson School at Cornell University. Her work included relationship building and business development with large and small companies across industries. She managed a team of career advisors, employer engagement leads, and operations staff to meet goals of student placement and student satisfaction.
Michelle grew up in the Philadelphia suburbs and attended Syracuse University where she earned a B.A. in Broadcast Journalism and Spanish Language & Literature. Her husband Dave is Pastor of Emerging Generations at New Life Dresher, and they live in Glenside with their three children.
Professionally, Jennifer has been in nonprofit work for over 25 years. For the first eleven years of her career, Jennifer learned the foundations of nonprofit management at a nonprofit in Wheaton, IL ultimately working in senior leadership with responsibility for strategizing financial viability, donor messaging, and crisis management.
When she and Patric moved to Philly to work at Serge, Jennifer devoted her time to staying at home with their son Parker, while volunteering at their church and at Serge. In 2010, Veritus Group recruited her to join their team helping nonprofits reach their fundraising goals, mainly in major gifts. Since then, Jennifer has managed dozens of clients and helped hundreds of individuals, gaining tremendous insight herself from these wonderful people.
She is thrilled that God has opened a door to bring the experiences he has given her to benefit an organization about which she cares so deeply.
She joined Serge in September 2011 as Human Resources Leader, where she combines HR administration with a heart for loving people. She is married to Andy, who manages rental units in the Poconos and specializes in building and property maintenance.

Dr. Jack Miller
Serge (formerly World Harvest Mission) was organized under the leadership of Dr. Jack Miller, a pastor, evangelist and author. In the late 1970s, the missions-outreach of the congregation he founded and pastored, New Life Presbyterian Church, was spreading beyond that local body.
Other church leaders gathered with Dr. Miller to work together in wider ministry. After many informal missions trips to Ireland and Uganda, Serge was officially established in 1983.
Today, Serge has over 300 missionaries serving in over 25 countries around the world.
